Yeah, I promised the missus I'd do less racing and take her touring or something so perhaps I can steal some routes and plan a tour rather than enter any particular event. That would work better for holidays and stuff. I'm a bit in love with Spain now though so maybe another go next year..
All lies, I heard they were drunk, we actually only ride on zwift.
The Spanish gravel looked awesome and the bits I did there last year were great.
haha yeah I thought you guys were heavy drinkers. Bunch of lightweights :P
I have a love hate thing with gravel. It's kind of fun but I hate meeting it during a 'road' race, especially when I've already killed a 28mm and my spare 28mm has cuts in the sidewalls already, as I'm so paranoid about destroying tyres and walking in my stupid Speedplay/midfoot shoes. I've bought some flat pedals and to try with "normal" shoes next year so that might help for any hike a bike stuff but I worry that it'll mess up the majority of the riding.
I'm looking into 650B wheelset so I can run some massive tyres for gravel lols.
Gravel... for Badlands, maybe? hihihi
I'm working on it...
Anyway, Transiberica 2020 is on the table!
I think the chain need some more links...
Nah, it's fine with the 36T.
I still want to see if the 40T or 42T cassette will work. I will definitely need to lengthen the chain for that.
Bike needs to be taped up again for bags and I may take the dynamo lights off again now that I have 650B wheels without dynamo.
Oh yeah, I just noticed, it does look bad but it was in big-big when I took pics as I was just testing the gears. It looks much nicer dropped into the little ring.
Registrations re-open again!!
